Summer Share Trial Week #4

NOTES ON THE SHARE Beans - This week there are green 'Strike', yellow 'Cherokee Wax' and purple 'Royal Burgundy' beans. The yellow and purple beans can be used in recipes calling for green beans.  They can all be steamed or stir-fried together for a beautiful side dish. Bok Choy - There are baby bok choy heads in all the boxes.  We have added a few recipes to the website. Broccoli – Some boxes will receive the ‘Romanesco’ variety of broccoli.  We love its lime green whorls. It cooks like broccoli and cauliflower and is interchangeable in any broccoli recipe. Everyone will get to try it over the next few weeks. Carrots – This week the carrots are ‘Red Core Chatenay ’ and 'Baby Carrots'.  Would love your feedback on the taste. Eggplant - Eggplant are here with 'Long, Thin, Purple", an Asian variety showing up in some of the boxes this week. The plumper 'Listada' eggplant are not far behind. Lettuce – All boxes have a head of Green Oak Leaf.  The full-share will also have a head of Green Cos. Potatoes – This week the variety is white skinned ‘Coliban’. Tomatoes – Look forward to some extras in your box this week. Zucchini – We have a surplus of zucchini.  Please ask if you would like extra.

RECIPE SUGGESTIONS Recipe suggestions for the week are: Bok Choy, Broccolini and Chicken in a Spiced Sauce Lazy Sweet Corn Fresh Corn Salsa Fresh Tomato Pasta with Basil and Bocconcini
